Default Building System - Help Needed

Hi,

I am planning to build a regular system for checking email, surfing, play small games- computer games, etc...I dont want to be expensive...I have:-

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 CPU and 1 Gig DDR2 677 MHz

I need to buy Motherboard but dont know which one to get.

I was looking on ASUS P5B ATX, P5B Deluxe, P5N-E-SLI or any other.

Can anyone suggest me which one to buy? Not looking for expensive, but the one it should work with E6600. Also what else do I need?

Thanks
Romie

You don't need a sound card. Get the DFI P965-S over any ASUS motherboard. For the powersupply, get the Corsair HX620 or the Ultra X-pro. You shouldn't have to change anything in the BIOS.
